I haven't read the novel but I finished the drama and like most of the times in the movie can't be shown everything so it felt a little bit rushed.
They have made some differences in the movie, like Cao Guang being the same person with Zhen Shui Wu Xiang (the ex of Wei Wei in the game) but is well connected.
I liked more Wei Wei played by Angela Baby, she read more portrayed more effectively her emotions and feelings.
Jing Boran hasn't the charm of Yang Yang (main actor of the drama) but he played very well the role of Xiao Nai and I liked that Xiao Nai was more talkative and smiled more often in the movie. :D ;)
The scenes inside the game were amazing, it made you feel like you were playing the game together with them. Especially the battle with the dragon in the game was awesome.
Its perfect movie especially if you are an online game fan :P ;) its modern, romantic and sweet without any dramas and it focus more on the online game world.

THIS REVIEW IS ONLY BASED ON THIS MOVIE, NOT THAT OF THE ORIGINAL WORK.

***SPOILER ALERT***SPOILER ALERT***
[If you haven't read the novel, watched the TV drama version, and know nothing of the plot and do not want it spoiled for you, then read no further... if that's not you OR you don't care, read on....]

I'm not gonna break my review down by sections. My review is a juxtaposition of the read more others and how I felt it compared:

The consolidation of scenes, characters, and information in the movie version was interesting. Not horrible, but definitely not 100% true to the original story. Zhen Shao Xiang's personality being consolidated into a combo of him and Cao Guang was kind of abrupt for me. Or KO being the manager of the internet cafe?? Wasn't expecting that. ..putting Hao Mei and KO's story as filler while rolling the credits was kind of dumb. Without "context" you missed the significance of that and it just became some kind of embarrassing moment for Hao Mei. ..frankly, I think they came at this project with the idea that everyone had either read the novel or watched the TV version. There's so much missing that without knowing anything, this movie would feel incomplete.

This Wei Wei is more outgoing than she's supposed to be. That's the aspect of her character that's really important in her connection with Xiao Nai. She's pure, innocent, shy, humble, and doesn't like to draw attention to herself. In this version, she's really not that way at all. She's much more extrovert and dominant, no where near passive. If you like her better this way, it's simply personal preference, but it's not the true character of her as written in the novel. And just as this Wei Wei is more extroverted, and not so shy, this Xiao Nai is a bit more emo and less hard-to-read, badass, cutthroat who was always 2 steps ahead of everyone else.

...and bottom line, what I really want to say, the BROMANCE and the relationship between him and his "brothers" and Wei Wei was really, really, REALLY, really lacking for me int this movie version. For me, that was as important if not MORE important than the romance between Xiao Nai and Wei Wei. I loved the whole "family" feel and it just enhanced their romance all the more. In this version, I just felt wanting; I felt lacking; I was waiting for there to be more of a close feeling with Wei Wei and the "brothers" but, more than half way through they barely had anything to say to each other. It was sad.

The ending was beyond rushed. Not only did they really let us down with anytime with the "brothers" but the whole 2nd part about their company and Wei Wei and Xiao Nai becoming closer to the point of marriage was basically completely skipped over. Not fulfilling for me at all.

My Best Fangirl Moment:
~At 1:32:00, when the Chinese League of Legends team, Invictus Gaming [IG] gets interviewed by Panda TV about the "Young" company of Xiao Nai. Rookie introduces himself and the team. Rookie is one of those South Korean players that the Chinese spent loads of money to transfer to China to play. Then, from left to right, you have Zzitai[top], Kitties[support], Rain[ADC] and another South Korean player, ending with Kid [jgl]... that means obviously that Rookie is IG's midlaner.... I just simply loved this little moment in time!!

Both of the female leads are known as wei wei. The drama/movie have the same feel. except that one smile is very alluring is a little more light hearted.

Both the movies have good chemistry between the characters. Simple love stories with not lot of complicated characters.
Both movies have a drama version.
Both the dramas are better than the movies, as you can see the growth in the characters. Would recommend watching the dramas related to these movies as well.

    tbh as a movie version this is equally as good as the drama.
    I liked the Wei Wei in here much more, she was more expressive and outgoing and the graphic effects in the movie are just on another level.
    but you get to know the characters better in the drama, what is logical since it's much longer.
    aaaand the kiss was much better, sorry yang yang but zheng shuang was basically just a door when you kissed her. a suprised door.

    I watched it for a second time. It was less awful, but I stick to the fact that it went way too fast. Because of this you don't get to know the characters.

    Fast pace. Don't really feel the chemistry between the two. I feel that the movie was rush and cram together. A lot of their lines that was said. I'm just not feeling it as it was in the drama version. Ex: the meet up at the bridge. It's not mesmerizing. Although I love the main leads. Only reason I watch the movie.

    Okay so I keep reading reviews where they say the movie is better. But I highly disagree. So I'm planning on watching it for a second time, maybe I'll change my mind and I'll find it less awful.

    What a sweet film.

    I decided to watch it after being very disappointed and bored with the drama series. I'm glad I did because I thought this was far more enjoyable and a huge improvement. The acting by the cast was considerably better, the story zipped along, the soundtrack and CGI was better and I really got into the story. It was kind of weird seeing the same scenes play out though.

    I would highly recommend the film over the drama series. Hands down, it's so much better.

    Angela Baby and Jing Boran are gorgeous and I enjoyed watching them onscreen. Their acting didn't feel forced at all. Yang Yang, who's a very handsome man, came across as stiff in the drama most times.

    Does anyone know why the drama and film came out around the same time?

    P.S. I LOVED the bicycle/grocery bag scene here even more.

    kudos for the beautiful visuals. I was really surprised by the high quality of CGI. Also a compliment to Angelababy for portraying Wei Wei as an energetic and passionate young woman who likes to laugh. I liked her much more than the female lead in Love020.
    I'm only a bit dissatisfied by the length. But in the end quality is more important to me than quantity.
    Loved it^^
